Whether wearing crop tops, tight shirts, or even low hanging jeans, it seems that there are so many ways that the fat on our stomach and love handles can cause issues. Now, that is not to say that we all need to be so thin that we worry the wind might carry us away, but rather, we all would like a better contour in our figure — to be able to wear that tight shirt or jeans without thinking that stubborn fat is hanging out or over it.
Diet and exercise will be the first option that you would try. Hoping that the fat will disappear with just a few sessions at the gym or a week of protein shakes, you might be left feeling disappointed in the lack of results. Even after a month of working out and dieting, you might think that your body is just not changing, and that could be due to genetics. Cosmetic surgery has been a beneficial alternative to making significant shifts to your already busy lifestyle. When it comes to stomach fat and love handles, there can be two options to explore.
An invasive option to consider is liposuction. Invasive means that you would have to go under general anesthesia for the procedure to be done. While you are under, your surgeon will make incisions in the targeted area, whether it be the abdomen, sides, or both for a tool called a cannula to be inserted. A cannula is a standard tool employed during liposuction; it is a thin hollow tube that is moved back and forth beneath the skin to loosen the fat. Once the fat is dislodged, it is suctioned out, never to grow back again. This procedure has a recovery time of about four weeks, with two weeks being entirely about rest. If you don’t have the time or the desire to go “under the knife,” there is a non-invasive procedure that can help!
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve any anesthesia, and the process is so short you can go during your lunch break! CoolSculpting is done through a process called cryolipolysis, better known as “fat freezing.” Done through applicators that come in various sizes for a different part of the body, your stomach or love handles can be strapped in while you sit down and catch up on that book you’ve been reading. The fat cells are destroyed with cold temperatures, and they don’t recover. Instead of being removed through any incisions, your body will naturally flush out the dead cells. Although you may not see results right away, you can still get the results you are looking for and even have multiple sessions spaced out.
There is no need to have an invasive procedure for small pockets of fat on your stomach or waistline. CoolSculpting provides you with a non-invasive alternative that will have you excited to show off!
